ADTRW: newest and worst time sink

The only reason it's not as bad as TV Tropes is that eventually the threads come to an end...For those non-goons in the audience, ADTRW is the anime section of the forums at somethingawful.com, and if you can't figure out what the acronym stands for, you clearly don't hate anime (or Japan) enough. Be that as it may, while some threads contain horrific stuff that would make even hardened /b/tards die inside, others have some really good, meaty discussions about series that are currently loose in America, to say nothing of anime and manga series that are available only through fansub or scanalation.

P donated an IDE floppy drive to me for the Failbox, and I really ought to spend some time this weekend working on that so I can get the stupid thing's firmware fixed. If that doesn't work, I guess I won't have much option but to just use it as it is until I can afford to get something better.

Also this weekend, I'm going to review a couple of history books before I take them back to the library, do laundry, and otherwise try not to spend money, which is something I've been doing way too much of lately.

I'm tempted but afraid of going in for any more time sinks.

Tonight I delve into the first disc of "Ghost in the Shell".

That's one of those classics I have yet to watch...no good reason for the delay, really.

I've seen the first two and scattered episodes, enough to make me want the rest.

Princess Tutu is like that for me.
